I have been lurking here for a while, but I don't post much. I have an '06 Wee and I have been thinking a lot about stepping up to the Vee because I think the extra power would be entertaining. I have heard a lot of people like the 650 better, so I wondered if perhaps someone in the New England area had a Vee they would allow me to try out sometime. I've got to make a decision soon because I have been getting the urge to start modifying the wee beyond bolt on changes. :mrgreen:

I realize its a lot to ask to let a complete stranger ride your bike, so I would gladly make a day of it and go for a nice ride so you get to meet me and see me ride before letting me give it a go. I will even buy lunch! :thumbup:

I've got a DL1000 for sale in Allston (just got a Super Tenere). I have a buyer but he needs to secure financing. I should find out today whether that works out or not. If not, you're welcome to try it out. If you like it I will give you a great deal :)

As for which model is better, it depends on who you ask. I have had both and greatly prefer the power of the 1000.

Thanks, I am probably going to go out for a ride with ndavis in the north central mass area this weekend to give his a try. You are welcome to join if you want, should I post a "I want to ride your super tenere" thread next? :green_lol:

I own a first gen sv650 which is just so much fun, I figured the wee would be about the same amount of enjoyment, but with a more comfortable riding position. Sadly this turned out not to be true, with the different tuning, efi, and heavier weight, it just doesn't have the same feel. The extra power on the Vee seemed like it would probably do the job. I have read a bunch of wee vs vee threads and figured there was only really one way to find out which I like better and that is to ride one!

I saw your Vee on craigslist, looks nice, unfortunately, after I make a decision on whether to step up or not I have to sell my Wee before I will have the cash. Unless you need a super tenere AND a wee...:mrgreen:
